Our menu is a smart choice
The YSS Tuckshop menu observes the Smart Choices Strategy of Education Queensland. It ensures that our menus provide healthy food and drink choices for our kids. For more detailed information please visit Queensland Association of School Tuckshops Inc.
Most of the meals prepared in the tuckshop are made fresh each day by volunteers. We pride ourselves on offering a healthy and delicious menu but we need many volunteers to do it!
Frequently asked questions
Why can sushi only be purchased online?
The school encourages your child’s main meal to be eaten at 1st Break. Orders need to be finalised early so they can be prepared by our supplier.
Why is hot food only available at first break?
As first break is our main eating time and volunteers only work in the tuckshop in the morning.
My child has food allergies, can they use the tuckshop?
We want every child to be able to order every day. Please come and talk to us at the tuckshop so we can source alternatives according to your child’s needs.
Can I add or subtract things from an order?
Feel free to substitute sauces or subtract ingredients, but please not add. This makes it very difficult when preparing meals in the tuckshop.

Our Tuckshop team
Our Tuckshop is led by Stacey Resetti (Convenor), and Yvonne Starr as Assistant Convenor (you may recognise Yvonne who is also our Uniform Shop Convenor).
From term 4, 2020, we are trialling opening the Tuckshop on Tuesdays, as well as the usual Tuckshop days of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Should our community indicate their desire for the Tuckshop to continue opening on Tuesdays in 2021 (through the volume of orders) we will confirm this before school returns in term 1, 2021.
Stacey and Yvonne would love to hear from you if you have a couple of hours you would like to volunteer for the Tuckshop during term 1 – from 9.00-11.00am on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, or if you are able to bake some ever-popular muffins: email@example.com.
From Stacey: “Let’s make some sandwiches, cook some sausage rolls and muffins, and have some fun along the way. Everyone is welcome in the Tuckshop!”
